During the late winters, the calm and placid Nubra valley of Ladakh comes to life with the vibrant Yargon Tungshak Festival. The festival is mainly known for its much acclaimed Cham Dance (Mask Dance) that brings the colors to the entire region. Decked up in traditional costumes, the dance is performed on the beats of drums and low-level syllables which are uttered with a strange melody. During the festival, one can feast on delicious delicacies like skyu, gurgur cha and thukpa. Also, a grand religious prayer takes place in a monastery. Along with the traditional Tibetian chants, Sanskrit chants are also uttered by monks.
